Thanks for the info on the tyres. Does anyone know if the 225X70X16 fit on the 6.5 inch standard rims? Would it increase the risk of rolling a tyre off at lowered pressure?

I think the wider a tyre relative to the rim is the less likely it is to to roll of.

It'll certainly fit, though 6.5" is towards the lower end of what tyre manufacturers typically recommend.

I've been running 225/60R16's on my 6.5" outback rims for some time.

Not sure I'll do it again - feels like the sidewalls do roll a bit more than 215's when cornering hard, but that could well be just the change in tyre brand/style, too.
